It's Paul Simon's Birthday!

Still crazy after all these years.

Paul Simon, folk rock royalty and one of Forest Hills' turns 71 today.

I'm a little curious what you get the guy who has more or less everything, but he's probably just relieved that his old buddy turned up.

In honor of the folk rock icon's birthday, I thought I'd ask for your favorite Paul Simon jam. 

Is it from the Simon and Garfunkel years? Or did you like him better once he struck out on his own?

The guy had a big impact on my musical youth. I was a nut for "You Can Call Me Al" when I was little. Graceland was actually the first album I ever remember listening to all the way through without skipping a song.

Take to the comments and let us know what you think!

I can't pick a favorite time, always one of my favorites from the S&G days through his solo days. I even loved his Broadway show!!!!!!!

Solo = freedom. Freedom = Graceland. Nelson Mandela "music will be the salvation of our people". Think that about covers it. Did I mention "So Beautiful Or So What"?
